No, the AMD Ryzen 3600 (AM4) won't work on a Intel (LGA1150) motherboard.

You might be able to find a 1150 socket i7 or Xeon but you need to check to make sure your motherboard supports it.
How can i check if my motherboard supports it and also is the i7 1150 a worthy upgrade from my 4460 ?

It's difficult to say what is supported as I can't seem to find info from Dell but a 1150 socket max 84W TDP i7 or Xeon should work.

As if it's worth it....comes down to budget and the games you play. Open world style games could benefit from the additional threads.

If your budget allows this would be a good upgrade.
